KOSIK's Plastic Piano and Slow Kid, sometimes called Toy Piano and Slow Kid was a demo recording. Matt Borghi and Michael Kirson-Goldapper after having done a great deal of solo work in and around the Detroit-area, these two lifelong friends decided to embark on a musical project. They set about doing this recording in the dark months of November and December 2003. Conceived one night as the two drove up from Cleveland after playing a show, KOSIK almost immediately gained folk's attention. The combination of chilled ambient, dense textures and strong melodic hooks had a lasting value. Two of the tracks on this collection were also featured on a Ghostly International 12", which the label graciously released back to the artists, so that they could post this excellent as a complete entity here, for all to enjoy. It's been said that this recording has been burned to CD-R hundreds of times, so let's hope the wider Archive community enjoy it as much.
KOSIK only lasted as a duo for about a year, one intense year with numerous recordings, shows, and record deal offers. However, Michael and Matt just couldn't make it work, personally, and decided to go their own separate ways musically to sustain their friendship. With Michael currently crafting some new KOSIK tracks, and Matt doing his own ambient psych folk, these recordings can now be preserved here for posterity. In fact nearly every KOSIK recording made throughout 2003 and 2004 is here, and has been archived.
